Happy Friday neighbours,

If you can’t handle the heat, get a new kitchen.

The Christchurch City Mission’s social enterprise, Thrive Catering, is relieved to have moved to a new state-of-the-art commercial kitchen as it continues to provide cooking classes and other essential lessons to Christchurch’s most vulnerable.

Thrive offers work experience courses for City Mission clients who are trying to get back on their feet. They are given valuable cooking lessons and other life skills to better their prospects for the future, when the mission no longer provides direct support for them.

The charity's Hereford St base kitchen had become too small, meaning course capacity was limited and many were missing out on learning vital skills.

Do you remember the big snow of 1992?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey Cantabs,

It was quickly dubbed “the big snow” and was the heaviest snowfall in three decades.

“Christchurch teetered on the brink of disaster yesterday as the worst snowstorm in 30 years first paralysed the city, then caused widespread flooding,” The Press reported on August 29, 1992.… View more

We have got so busy with the business, becoming 7 days a week by the time we do paperwork and Shan working away plugging a gap in Grey Hospital that our house has been very neglected.

We are looking for a housekeeper to clean 2 bathrooms, vacum wash floors and dust. Must be non smoker (our daughter is a asthmatic) and be confident with big dogs as we have 2, in the papanui area.

While the business is run from home there may be times you need to let yourself in and clean hence complete confidence with the dogs is a must.

Our property is also covered by security cameras ..we like to be above board and make sure people know this prior to starting wk.

If you feel you could help us out please message or text 021 217 2382

Thanks

World War II dominated the 1940s. "Our boys" marched through Christchurch before
departing to fight the foe. They were joined by many women who had enlisted in the armed forces to serve in support roles. Here, some of the 549 members of the Women's Service Auxiliary march in a street parade. It is April, 1941. Germany has inflicted a series of defeats
on Allied forces in Europe and Japan is preparing for war in the Pacific. Such parades
boosted patriotism, which helped the military recruitment drive and the raising of money for
the war effort through bonds schemes.
